My wife’s family memories

Where are your family memories stored?

For my wife, they’re kept in many places, not just in the synaptical, neuronic electrochemical impulses of a single central nervous system.

Some are stored here, at the cemetery in Stony Point, Tennessee, next to New Providence Presbyterian Church:

…where naturally-aged gravestones tell the story of time in more ways than one:

Those memories make my wife happy and when she’s happy, I’m happy!
